Anastasia A is a Canadian artist who wears many hats. She is known for her pop songs and music videos after making her mark on the Disney|The Family Channel. She now continues to  use her platform and experience with Singing, writing , acting , dancing and modelling to collaborate through out the entertainment business in creative ways with a purpose. “ I am passionate about projects with a meaningful message and if that inspires others then that is a bonus. It means something to me to be a part of the bigger picture. We need to help one another. Running and operating an indie label and fighting my way through has made me realize that this is worth it only if I touch, move and inspire people along the way”.  That is exactly what she does. Her voice reaches many different people through her ongoing projects. " My career is always evolving but it's not really a job, it's more like a lifestyle and I get to do what I love for a living".

Anastasia’s career choices are driven by creating movements, inspiring youth and dedicating her platform to stand up for what truly matters to her heart.  She records, acts, is a Casting Associate in film and runs a lifestyle blog.

Anastasia has had the pleasure of opening and performing next to artists such as Shawn Desman, These Kids Wear Crowns, Tyler Shaw, Neverest, 4Count, Rebel Coast, Justin Nozuka, A-Game, Three Days Grace,  Finger Eleven,  The Trews, Catey Shaw, SUBLIME, Scotty James and Tokyo Police Club.

Anastasia independently released her first single, “Kiss & Tell” through Universal. "I really wanted to take the reins and learn the business myself.” She spent 2 years on the court feeling out what it meant to do this for a living before making the decision to start her own label.  “I really enjoyed the thrill of contacting people, co-managing my opportunities all while finding my voice”.

In May of 2012, Anastasia won Toronto International Music Summit’s Best Pop Act contest partnered with ReverbNation. Earlier that year, she was among the top 1O artists in EMI’s national talent search (MO Artist), which later led her to establish her first publishing deal. She was also named “most talked about” upcoming artist by sponsors Hot 89.99 during the 2012 JUNO awards in Ottawa. Anastasia partnered up with dance label PBR recordings. The outcome was five remixes of her single “Kiss & Tell”, released on Beatport.

Writing lyrics and melodies is always on the agenda. Anastasia got her start through Producer Jazz Feezy (Devon Tracey, JRDN, and JOJO) of Boi-1da Productions who mentored and advised her to continue writing. She most recently collaborated internationally with pop writer-producer.

Anastasia’s recent performances include Faze Magazine’s Power Up Concert,  Hockey Fest, Canadian Music Week, Toronto Fashion Incubator’s 25th Anniversary, ReelWorld Film Festival, Toronto International Music Summit, and Free the Children’s We Day stadium tour.
